In my house everyone wants indian food. It is sometimes difficult as everything is either cooked/fried in oil or ghee. Now we do less frying and more baking or roasting vegetables on open flame. You can also put oil in a spray bottle and just spray a little in pot for cooking.(just a thin layer to coat the pan) We steam a lot of food and for taste add a little bit of masala before serving.
Here's a sample meal
b/fast - yogurt with fruits and oatmeal.
Lunch - dhal (put lots of vegetables i.e carrots in it) + rice
supper - roasted vegetables, roti
We cut down on potatoes. Rice only take 1/4 cup and eat sabji's more.
I rarely do all Indian food on a given day, but honestly if you enter your recipes on sparkpeople (or use ones posted there- I know I have some up :P), you can eat anything and make it work. Here's an idea of what I would do:
burji (mostly egg whites) with a piece of whole grain toast or a small roti; daliya is a great breakfast too!
dahin and fruit or raw veggies for snacks
a sabji sandwich on whole grain toast with cheese, or rajma/cholay (most of the time plain- no rice or roti! but i like to eat more protein and relatively fewer carbs)
dinner will be a little bigger usually- something with a lot of protein like healthier versions of chicken curry/chicken tikka masala/tofu stir fry or tofu masala/etc!
Healthy choices and actions have positive impacts, even if the scale doesn't move!
